Free Fonts: I’m Lovin’ It


I’m a bit obsessed with fonts.  I love to add text to my photos and I’ve been known to spend more time searching for just the right free fonts to put on my pictures than I do photographing and editing them!

I get a lot of messages asking what fonts I’ve used on various pictures, so I thought I’d throw together a little list of some of my favorite free fonts.

TidyMom Favorite Free Fonts

Click each of the links to Download Free Fonts :

skinny jeans | oil can| simply glamorous | riesling | lemon chicken | talking to the moon | respective | quaver sans | freebooter script | haymaker | ecolier | 5th grade cursive | tidymom | champagne & limousines

Note:  some of these fonts are from Lost Type.  Lost Type  is not a free font site–it’s a pay-what-you-want site. You can enter zero to download fonts for free or choose a specific amount to send to the designer.

So tell me………are you a font collector? What are some of your favorites?  Leave a comment and let me know if you’d like to see more of my favorite fonts from time to time!

    I heart fonts! I would change my blog fonts every day if I had the time, there are just so many nice ones. I love cursive ones (like 5th grade cursive) and modern ones (like Oil Can).
    Thanks Cheryl, as always, for hosting!

    I love free fonts! SO much, I’m a total hoarder. Now, if only I could use them in PicMonkey I’d be a really happy girl. :)

    Ok, I’m a font newbie…are those the names of each of the fonts, in your graphic? Love them all, especially Reisling. Where do I go to look for free fonts?? Thanks!

    • TidyMom replied on June 1st, 2012 at 6:16 am

      Yes Jenna, those are the names of the fonts, and the links are right below the graphic of where you can download them

    How do I use these lovely fonts?

    • TidyMom replied on June 1st, 2012 at 6:17 am

      I use them on pictures and graphics I make for my blog

  8. Jalet posted on May 31, 2012 at 9:02 pm (#)

    One font I searched and searched for is the font on the old Swingline Staplers. Never did find the exact thing but did run across a font site that is great. Check it out at Font Diner.

    Oh – I never know where people find all these cool fonts. Great resource! Thanks!

    Cute fonts! I recently found out how to download fonts correctly and have been going wild since then. It’s so fun! Anyways, I would love to see some of your favorites now and then because you obviously have good taste :)
    Thanks for the sweet party!

    I am such a font geek! I love fonts and had about half of these :-) I love all of the Fonts for Peas, and one I just discovered (and see everywhere now) is Lavanderia! Love that too!

    • TidyMom replied on June 1st, 2012 at 6:18 am

      yep! I use that one a lot too – it’s similar to the font I use in my logo

    I’m a little obsessed with fonts and I hate the font on my blog :( I’m in the process of hunting for a new one. Thank you for this post! Pinning!!!

    Love fonts… collect them wherever I can… one of my favorites today is Tinkertoy! Who knows what it will be tomorrow!

    I LOVE the fonts but, like a few other comments…I’m wondering how do I use them? I downloaded them but, then how do I add them to Word/Picasa etc.?
    Thank you!

    • TidyMom replied on June 1st, 2012 at 6:20 am

      If you have a font installed on your computer, you should be able to use it in any program,
      When you download the font, click install – and that’s all you need!

      • Shannon replied on June 4th, 2012 at 7:23 pm

        I clicked install and then I checked in Word and it’s not showing up. What am I missing?

        • TidyMom replied on June 4th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

          sometimes you have to close Word and re-open and it should be there.
          What version of Windows are you using?

          • Shannon replied on June 6th, 2012 at 8:04 pm

            2007. Still not there and I shut down too :(

    I LOVE FONTS!! I have many faves, but can’t think of names right now. I probably have too many to think of.

  42. Kimberly Carman posted on June 2, 2012 at 2:08 am (#)

    I love these fonts! I’m still trying to decide on one to use for my new blog. I have a question about the oil can font though. When I clicked the link it took me to the correct place but it wants me to pay to download it (little box above download button on the right asks how much I want to pay to download it) Am I missing something to get the font free?

    Thanks again for the collection!

    Looks like I answered my own question LOL gotta love when you don’t read the print underneath the links the 1st time around. I got the oil can font and I truly appreciate you putting all of this together!
